Bronwyn and John met through work and after realising that he didn’t want to go live without Bronwyn by his side, John planned a secret proposal which was to take place in the most romantic city in the world. Bronwyn had just returned from a trip to Australia, visiting her family, when John announced a surprise weekend away. It was only when they arrived at the airport that Bronwyn knew they’d be visiting her favourite city, Paris. John had arranged a room at a beautiful hotel at Place Vendome and during a romantic walk along the River Seine, the groom-to-be got down on one knee at the Pont Neuf and popped the big question.
John didn’t propose with a ring, but instead thought that they could choose the perfect engagement ring together whilst in Paris. Unfortunately for John, but fortunately for Bronwyn, it transpired that the only jewellers open in Paris on a Sunday was Tiffany & Co. on the Champs Elysees! The couple went back to Paris on the anniversary of their engagement to buy matching wedding bands.
